Saints Quarter season review: from the ashes we will rise

Welp. Four weeks ago I thought I would be writing a VERY different piece, I thought I would be crowing over the dominant and Super Bowl bound Saints, and I wasn’t alone in that regard. For four weeks I have scouted our opponents from a Saints-centric perspective, and I have chosen to believe in the enormous potential of this team. Sadly, I am now forced to acknowledge the reality...

Mailbag: New Orleans Saints Sean Payton/Rob Ryan/Mickey Loomis on the hot seat?

Nick, I’m at sea. This season has been an absolute disaster, and I find myself reaching for people to place blame upon. It’s easy to blame the players – they are the ones that are out there on the field losing; however, is there any blame to be had amongst the coaching staff and front office? And if so, should any of them lose their jobs if this train wreck continues? – Wayward...

Rob Ryan: “Nobody’s doing worse than the Ryan Brothers”

Through the first four games of the season the Jets and the Saints have the worst two turnover ratios in the NFL. After getting torched by the Cowboys 38-17, Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan said him and his twin brother who is the Jets head coach both have to do a better job. “Right now, man, nobody’s doing worse than the Ryan brothers,” Rob Ryan told’s Katherine...

Rob Ryan’s defense has been bad this year

The Cowboys had 445 yards against former Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, who directed the scheme that led to one of the franchise’s worst offensive performances in years last season, about 10 months after they fired him. This year, Rob Ryan’s defense was supposed to be better, but they have been horrible. The Saints (1-3) […] The post Rob Ryan’s defense has been bad...

Rob Ryan takes a crack at the Dallas Cowboys coaching staff

When asked about Dallas’ offense, Rob Ryan quickly took a jab at his former employer. “You know, they’ve had a change in coordinator, like they do every year.” Ryan already had his revenge last season when the Saints routed the Cowboys 49-17 in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. This week, Ryan said he is more concerned with […] The post Rob Ryan takes a crack at the Dallas Cowboys...

New Orleans Saints DC Rob Ryan deemed biggest goat from Week 2

Some teams are off to a fast start, others are stumbling out of the gates, and a majority are languishing somewhere in the middle. That’s the NFL landscape after two games. How did each team get to their current point? In part, it was because of the performance, good or bad, of some key players and coaches. Some helped their team, while others hurt the squad. Who fell into each...

Sean Payton Screams Rob Ryan (Video)

Rob Ryan better watch himself. The Saints are 0-2, and the defense has given up game winning drives two weeks in a row. Head coach Sean Payton had seen enough during the fourth quarter and let Ryan know about his displeasure in a loud manner.  Ryan, of course wasn’t going to go quietly, and shouted back. This is a relationship to watch.

The New Orleans Saints Are 0-2 And Sean Payton Is Yelling At Rob Ryan

Nobody is happy after a loss. Nobody is happy after starting off the season 0-2. Nobody is happy losing to the Cleveland Browns. So, here is Sean Payton yelling at Rob Ryan two minutes before the Browns kicked their game-winning field goal. The Saints are 0-2 and it’s weird.

Rob Ryan vows Saints’ defense ‘will be great’

Following last season’s regular season opener, when the Saints defeated the Falcons, Rob Ryan famously bought rounds of drinks for patrons in a New Orleans bar. This year, he likely drank to help him forget. Last Sunday, the Falcons, en route to a 37-34 victory, tore Ryan’s defense to shreds in a game the outspoken defensive coordinator deemed a “stinker.” “Look, that was...

Jerry Jones on Rob Ryan firing: 'Doesn't look very good right now"

Jerry Jones probably knew earlier than Sunday night that ditching defensive coordinator Rob Ryan after last season wasn’t the most prudent of choices (although the decision didn’t stand out too much, as the man is not known for prudence). But after Ryan and his new team, the Saints, affirmed that strongly Sunday night by thrashing the Cowboys 49-17, Jones did swallow his pride...
